“Given the limited supply issues that we’re talking about and then the elevated nature of demand, those things just don’t go well together,” said Thomas Goldsby, a University of Tennessee Supply Chain Management Professor.
Goldsby recommended thinking ahead about ingredients needed for future meals when shopping, but don’t panic buy.
The cost of labor, transportation and fuel are causing inflation as well.
“It’s just a natural consequence when you have off the chart demand and limited supply to go around,” said Goldsby. “Price is going to be that final variable that’s going to adjust and unfortunately for the consumer, it’s adjusting upward right now.”
